Whilst Ferne McCann is best known for being a reality star and television presenter, her life before television is less known. Ferne, in fact, began her career in the pageant world. The star finished in the top 15 of Miss England 2012. Ferne McCann’s net worth is estimated at £400,000 but how exactly did the reality star make her money?
How Ferne McCann made her net worth
After her stint in pageants, Ferne began a career in reality television in 2013, becoming a regular cast member of The Only Way is Essex. Her appearance on TOWIE seemed to rocket her to fame, staying on the show for several years before quitting the show in 2016. It is rumoured the cast are paid in four bands, with the highest being paid £450 per episode. But most of the cast makes their money in endorsements, clothing lines and spin-off shows.
In addition to her work on TOWIE, Ferne became a contestant on the popular reality show I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in 2015. A late arrival to the camp, with two other reality stars, including Queen of the Jungle 2015 Vicky Pattison and Spencer Matthews, Ferne was clearly adored by the voting public, finishing third, alongside runner-up George Shelley. It is unclear how much she made for her appearance on the show, but 2019 contestants were reportedly getting paid from £25,000 up to £500,000.
Ferne has also tried her hand at presenting television. She gained a regular gig as a showbiz item presenter on This Morning in January of 2016, just months after returning from Down Under. Her relationship and networking with ITV did not stop there as Ferne and friend from the jungle Vicky Pattison landed their own show on ITVBe “Ferne and Vicky On The Road” where the pair of jungle besties were documented on their road trip of the Amalfi Coast, Italy as a segment for This Morning.
In 2018, the reality star also took a dip into the celebrity fitness video world, posting a first look of her fitness programme “Fit as Ferne” on Twitter.

Ferne has a high social media presence with 2.6 million followers on her Instagram. From pictures of herself and her beautiful daughter to Ferne’s fashion looks, Ferne has become known as a style icon to her fans. She currently has her own line of fashion with the company Miss Pap. From high-waisted trousers to sexy looking dresses, her collection is beloved on the high street.
In early 2018 it was announced by Ferne that she had teamed up with one of her fellow TOWIE stars to collaborate on a new beauty line to be released at Poundland.
Though having an ever-growing career seems to be good for Ferne, her personal life seems to be the thing that most people want to know about.
Ferne McCann’s Personal Life
As a reality star Ferne McCann’s personal life appears to be played out on camera. On TOWIE Ferne was in a relationship with fellow star Charlie Sims. A relationship that according to the media was full of turbulence, the pair were together on and off before ending things in 2015. The star wrote in her autobiography “Close to my Heart” released in 2016 she says “ he was my best friend and I hope he always will be.”
Whilst Ferne has been rumoured to have a couple of other romantic links in the media, including fellow campmate and Union J star George Shelley, and Love Island 2018 contestant Charlie Brake, perhaps her most known relationship is with now jailed Arthur Collins. McCann announced her relationship with Collins in March of 2017, with the relationship being a rekindling of a former romance. It was revealed that Ferne was pregnant and planned to raise her baby as a single parent, after Collins was charged in relation to a night club acid attack in London.
Arthur Collins was jailed and is currently serving a 20-year sentence after being found guilty of being involved in an acid attack that was found to have injured 22 people and left 16 with serious burns. Due to how highly publicised this became Ferne decided to take a break from her job at This Morning.
She returned to the show as an interviewee where she discussed her pregnancy and what it’s like being a new mother. Whilst Phil and Holly got to meet Sunday Skye, Ferne made the point that she hates the term “Single Mum” instead opting to call herself a “First time Mum” hence the title of her new show.
Ferne McCann’s daughter Sunday Skye was born on 2 November 2017, her journey into motherhood is documented through her ITVBe show “Ferne McCann: First time Mum” running from 2017 – present, the show has just finished airing its fifth series in May this year. Series six of the show is yet to be officially confirmed by ITV.
Ferne McCann’s House
Ferne moved into her impressive farmhouse mansion in Essex last year and lives alone with her daughter. She featured her being shown around the house on her ITV series First Time Mum.
The mansion features a walk-in-wardrobe, a playroom for Sunday and a hot tub. The views are insane, with eye-popping countryside surrounding the house.
With her career expanding and social media exploding it is no wonder that Ferne McCann has a monster net worth of over £400,000. Ferne’s fans can continue to keep up with her multi-talented life through her social media and of course her show “First time Mum”.
